The countdown to Christmas has started and amongst buying presents and packing suitcases, I was due a a visit to my favourite hair salon: George Northwood. I've been seeing George for my cut, and his sister Sally for my colour for two years now. I used to have really long, untreated hair, I always kept it up in a pony tail and was never really bothered by it. Shortly after Greta was born I really felt the urge to do something different with myself... and went for a drastic cut. Needless to say I never looked back.
Since cutting my hair two years ago I've been pretty much sticking to the same bob-style, but this time I asked George to give me a really "straight choppy cut", keeping the same length pretty much all the way around.
Sally is George's sister and does my colour, I only really do that once a year because my hair tends to naturally go quite blond in the summer, but by December the benefits of the sun are long gone and I really wanted to recreate that "sun kissed" effect.
I'm not a big fan of highlights, I don't have the time or the the budget to retouch roots every couple of months so Sally gives me Baliage, which is a looks more natural and is a lot less high maintenance.
What I love about George and Sally is that they give low maintenance cuts (and colours) which last for months a time, and that most importantly I don't need to do nothing to. I don't straighten, I don't curl and I use whatever shampoo I happen to be trying that month. I simply blow dry head down and use Maui Wowie Beach Mist from Philip B.
